And you can see dolphins!

Lovely place for a coffee or lunch on the terrace overlooking the harbour. There is also a large restaurant inside with great views but in the evening there is limited daily opening. Been lucky enough to see dolphins in the bay from the terrace twice now. Menu is quite extensive... read more

This restaurant was only open on Friday evening but it is the end of the season. Good friendly service. My salt and pepper squid starter was excellent as was the seafood pasta. My husband had beef stroganoff and said it was wonderful. All washed down with a nice glass of wine - well recommended.

Good views but expensive for what you get. Tables cluttered and food poor. This place is only busy because of its position

We have just returned from a lovely and sunny week in New Quay (Wales). During our time there we spent several mornings on the beach, and visited the Old watch House for a spot of lunch, the menu was average but the people were lovely. We decided that we would go back one evening to see what was on offer,... More
